snh is on a distinguished road
I am trying to simulate the reaction between Lithium and sulphur hexafluoride to get lithium fluoride and lithium sulphide as products using the EDM model. When I initialize the case, I check the amount of reactant at the start by taking the mass integral. After simulation I again check the amount of reactant (lithium) but it is found to increase. I donot provide any source term for lithium but still it is found to increase. Can anyone please suggest what is going wrong ?

Also sometimes the solution is found to diverge and i get the error as
Divergence detected in AMG solver: species-0
